But those discs marked a mere moment in a showbiz career that began before she could walk, and continued into the 1980s. Patty's CV includes Broadway, Vegas, TV, movies ... and bread wrappers, as John Grecco and Phil Milstein reveal in this Spectropop exclusive. Click here for the full story: Discussion very welcome.

Is this true? I can't > quite tell. And if it is true, do they feature on any of the other > tracks? Jay Warner's "Billboard Book of American Singing Groups" says "Tony finally agreed to spend an hour in the studio with Ellie Greenwich, Toni Wine, Jay Siegel (lead of the Tokens) and Robin Grean doing backup vocals. With Hank Medress producing and Phil Margo (also of the Tokns) on drums it was almost a Tokens affair." "Dawn's record had some competition from a Bill and Steve Jerome produced version on Musicor by The Corporation, a Drifters-style group. They had obviously heard Toni Wine's original piano/voice demo of the song, a slower version than Dawn's." He gives the lineup for Dawn's first public appearance (a Christmas show at Carnegie Hall0) as Tony Orlando, Norman Bergen, Mitchell Brown. Ronnie Amodeo and Lois Griffith. (I know Ronnie Amodeo's name from somewhere but where exactly eludes me) The first Dawn record Telma Hopkins and Joyce Vincent appear on is the "Runaway - Happy Together" single. I don't think Jay's book is still in print but it's well worth picking up if you come across a copy - there's a lot of arcane information there.

It sounds as if it would have been one of the biggest sixties hit ever, although apparently it wasn't. A great, forgotten song, of the kind that keeps lingering in your head for days on end.

Message: 5 Date: Tue, 11 Jan 2005 18:41:46 +0100 From: Frank J Subject: Re: Steff Sulke: "Oh What A Lovely Day" The name rang a bell, and after googling a bit I was right. Steff Sulke is Stephan Sulke. A German guy who experienced a real strange career in the music business (which I didn't know to that day to be honest) According to the bio on his website (which I had to translate, so please excuse "ze" bad quality of the text) he was born on the 27th of December 1943 in Shanghai as son of German-Jewish emmigrants. When his parents wanted to return to Germany after end of WWII his father died on the trip back in Switzerland. His mother decided to stay there. In 1963 he released his first single under the "Steff" moniker in France and received an award for Chansons Newcomer of the Year. A year later - on one of his trips to the USA where his aunt lived - Steff met a guy working at radio station WQXI in Atlanta GA. who introduced him to Buddy Killen (Publisher and producer of many hits). In 1965 Steff scored a small hit in the south with "Where Did She Go". A few more releases followed until 1967 (among them "Oh What A Lovely Day) but nothing big happened. Due to the Vietnam war Steff went back to Switzerland. He studied Law but without a degree. He released several records under several names sung in French and English. In 1969 he built a studio where he recorded a lot of Jazz musicians, among them Dizzy and Monk. He also recorded for the Montreux Jazz Festival. In 1974 he opened up his Aquarius-Studio in Geneva. And now comes the best part (though I admit it's not really very Spectropopish ) In 1976 Steff gave his singing career another try. This time as a "Liedermacher" (which is best translated as Singer/ Songwriter) though the German Liedermacher means very often a man and his guitar/piano only. This time he hit big. During the late seventies and throughout the eighties he was very successful. He even entered the charts with "Uschi", a song about a girl. And just when he's on top of it all he quit showbiz again to go back to his studio in Switzerland. Nowadays he produces electronic devices for radio and TV broadcast stations. A business he already started in 1972. In 1999 he had another comeback and is currently making music in the Swiss and German area. The best stories are written by life.

Message: 7 Date: Tue, 11 Jan 2005 13:00:13 -0700 From: Alan Gordon Subject: Chad & Jeremy / Artie question Clark B. - As I recall, Chad & Jeremy put on a wonderful show. I still can't remember the name of the venue, it was close to Anaheim Stadium. You wanted to know what artists I was into in 1967; besides the usual BS artists I really liked a lot of acts, the Beatles, Stones, Spanky and our gang, to name a few. Garry and I were so busy that year going to work with one great artist after another and we really got into each act we met. I have a question for Artie Wayne, Artie can you tell us how you met Ben Raleigh? you both wrote some great songs and I would like to know more about Ben?

Message: 8 Date: Tue, 11 Jan 2005 22:19:30 -0000 From: S.J. Dibai Subject: Re: Steff Sulke: "Oh What A Lovely Day" Mike Bennidict: > Does anyone know about this person? [Steff Sulke] According to Dawn Eden's liner notes for the out-of-print "Have A Nice Life" comp, Steff was a Swiss singer and composer. For the US market, he put out a single on Epic in 1965 (more on that later), and also had "Strings of My Heart"/"I Believe (It Takes Two)" on Dial sometime later. Eden describes the latter as a "haunting Bee Gees-influenced single." The multilingual fellow had previously scored his biggest hit in Europe with a German language cover of "Little Honda." To Eden's info, I can add this: The Epic single's topside "Where Did She Go" is a catchy little beat tune that "Bubbled Under" the Hot 100 in the US. It's on the aforementioned comp and the singer is billed as "Steff." In the liners, Eden spells his last name "Shulke," while the composer of the song is credited as "S. Bulke" on the CD and back cover--this is presumably the same guy. Furthermore, your spelling of his last name--"Sulke"--must be the way he was billed on "Oh What A Lovely Day." I don't have that track, but a friend of mine has it listed under that name/spelling and dates it to 1967. Who'd have thought this info would come in handy someday? Only at Spectropop! S.J.

Now that this group has discussed French and Canadian pop in some detail, maybe we can turn our ears to the likes of Italy and Holland? My votes go to Bonnie St Claire (the best songs somehow mix northern soul and proto glam rock), Liesbeth List (who was Holland's answer to Marianne Faithfull and Francoise Hardy and whose multi- language repertoire is just amazing, spanning Serge Gainsboug, Tim Hardin and Bob Lind, among others), and, from Italy, Caterina Caselli (who did great versions of "The Days Of Pearly Spencer" and "In The Year 2525", as well as some great original songs, most notably "Il Carnevale").

Message: 10 Date: Tue, 11 Jan 2005 02:33:08 -0500 From: Country Paul Subject: A lot more Quebecois info Dave Monroe, thank you for the additional French-Canadian research. I've been chasing leads in for a while now. For the person who mentioned Les Hou-Lops, there's more at . This is the "automatic" English translation from the French - not too bad in comparison to some others; at least one can make sense of it! I still haven't found a bio of Le Couer d'une Generation, although there's a sample of "Pierrot Les Cheveux" ("Pierrot The Hair," literally) at at the page where you can also find many other samples of Quebecois pop from the 1970s. Some excerpts I've glanced over include: Anna Bell's "Moustache a Papa" [Papa's Moustache - is this a French version of an English song?) from '71, Karick's "Au Chante de l'Alouette" [With The Song of the Lark - nice country-rock] from '71, Anna Renee's "Une Amour d'Adolescent" [humorously auto-translated as The Love Of A Teenager, actually Paul Anka's "Puppy Love"] from '72, and Louise Forestier, "Dans la Prison de Londres" [In The Prison of London - a stomping progressive-folk romp] from '72 (I need to find a full version of this). One of my two favorite Nanette Workman songs, "Donne Donne" [Give Me, Give Me], is sampled in 1976. The other is "Save Me." Both songs are recorded in English on her album on Big Tree (US) released in the same year. There are also some nifty samples from a folky-type group called Beau Dommage in the '75 section. Not everything here is great, or even good, but this is an entire parallel universe of discovery which is keeping me quite highly entertained - and up much too late! Lyn in Australia, thanks for the Rockin' Rebels sites. I've "spent the night in Canada" (didn't expect to!), but will "migrate down to Buffalo" soon! Country Paul (a.k.a.

Message: 13 Date: Wed, 12 Jan 2005 01:32:57 -0000 From: Will Stos Subject: Dee Dee Sharp/Angels & Spector sessions Hi group, I've tried googling this question, but to no avail. I just heard Dee Dee Sharp's "There's No Fool like A Young Fool" on the fabulous Spectrop Girl Pop live 365 station. Having just listened to the Best of the Angels this morning, it struck me that it is virtually the same song as their single "I Adore Him." Which came first? Were they both written by the same person/team? I know the Angels song was a moderate hit, but what about Dee Dee's song? Were they released close together? Also, forgive the ignorance (I haven't been able to keep up with this list. What are the 'Spector Sessions' that get referred to here? I'm very interested in hearing some of these studio takes. Thanks, Will Stos : ) -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

I never knew Estelle could go that low! > Are there any Ronettes songs where you hear any other Blossoms > besides Darlene? Although I'm sure the Blossoms figure in on most of the Ronettes songs somewhere in the mix, I cant seem to pick any of their voices out. The one distinctive voice that I can seem to pick out on ANY Ronettes background seems to be Ronnie's!!! Same with the Crystals later Philles' songs--Lala can be heard singing background too with whomever was in the studio (again, Sonny, Cher et al.). The best Blossoms' references that I can use are the 1966-7 Johnny Rivers songs where I can say--" Edna is there" or "...that's Darlene hitting that note.....". AND I am more than sure that Darlene's alto is prominent on Clydie King's "The Thrill Is Gone". I know that the Blossoms got session fees because they had a union contract. Another session singer once told me that the other singers got paid in cash from Phil for their work. This same singer told me that Phil was more than generous with her and she was able to pay in cash for a new car in 1964!! Tony -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Message: 16 Date: Wed, 12 Jan 2005 11:12:10 -0000 From: Bob Celli Subject: Bob Dylan PBS Special There's a Bob Dylan film in the works headed up by Martin Scorcese. I was contacted by a person doing research for the show. She asked me if I could supply pics of Bobby Vee and the Shadows from 1959, the period where Dylan was in the group for a few gigs. The lady I was in touch with told me that the time period of 1959 to 1966 would be covered. She mentioned that Dylan had talked about his connection with Vee during his days in Fargo at length during nine hours of interviews. I believe that she mentioned the serious work on the project would begin in about two weeks. Bob Celli -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

As spot on as Phil's "diagnosis" of "Emily's Illness" by Nora Guthrie is (see Spectropop home page), I (also) hope Patty's music gets the CD treatment, as the descriptions of the singles come across very technicolor and exciting. Re: The Cowsill's manager who was focusing on them more than Patty's recordings; would that be a guy named Leonard Stogel or the Cowsill's father, "Bud"? I've seen both of their names listed as having managed them. Best wishes, Brent Cash -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 19 Date: Wed, 12 Jan 2005 17:01:59 -0500 From: Denis Gagnon Subject: Re: Nanette Workman James Botticelli > Wow...This IS news. A few collectors around here have the Atco single > from 1975 called "If It Wasn't For The Money" by Nanette Workman. > This is the first thing I've ever heard about her. So she's Canadian, > eh? Tres interessant. Nanette Workman is an American. Not sure where she was born but I believe she was raised in Mississipi. She was "discovered" by a French Canadian producer named Tony Roman around 1965 and he brought her to Montreal where she began recording in French a few weeks/months, after her arrival. I remember first hearing her music back in 1966. At that time, I doubt she knew the meaning of the lyrics of her songs. One of her first hit was a French cover of Sandy Posey's "I Take It Back", for the Canusa record company. A few years later she hung around and sang with the Rolling Stones and then she went to France where she sang with Johnny Hallyday (I believe she was also his girlfriend). She also appeared in a very successful musical called Starmania in Paris in the late 70's, early 80's. She has been back in Montreal for about 20 years now.

Pretty neat; almost like having an in-tune Sonny and Cher singing the Righteous Brothers. Fun stuff; thanks Mick for posting and Claire for producing. Martin Roberts: > ...The Fabulous Little Joe "(In The) Good Old Summertime", > Eden 2, the current play @ Jack Nitzsche's Record of the > Week; Much fun, Martin, but I agree - no hit potential! But if one showed up at the shore in the summer and the band was playing this, I'm sure one would party down appropriately! Allan Rinde, thanks for the Toni Wine update. I also must compliment you and her on - It's also nice to see pictures of "then" and "now", and to know that our artists are still out there making music. Continued good luck! Phil M., re: product placements: > I didn't mean to get quite so off-topic, but this does > relate to our discussion of product names in song lyrics. I wonder if "Little Honda" would find its way onto American airwaves today (were it a new song) unless Honda bought airtime for its play. Denis Gagnon Re: French-Canadian artists and Nanette Workman: > Le Coeur d'une Génération had a big hit around 1970 with > "Pierrot les cheveux" (Hairy Peter?). Unfortunately, their > career was rather short. Thank you for filling me in on this group and Charlebois. I've been doing some further research, and now find myself looking for Le Coeur d'une Génération's album, Louise Forestier's album with "Dans la prison de Londres" and the first Beau Dommage album. LP, CD or mp3s are all fine. I invite responses on- or off-list. Julio Nino on "Je T´Aime ...

Chuck Woolery had NS mixed in both formats at the time, and even brought a tape of the stereo mix with him to an appearance at WOR-FM. An aircheck of this visit (or at least the stereo tape as it was played during the visit) is a highly sought download these days.

Message: 22 Date: Tue, 11 Jan 2005 12:59:07 -0800 (PST) From: Artie Wayne Subject: Re: French recordings Mikey... Comme c'est va? The Singing Nun was discovered and, I believe, produced by my late partner Lou Reizner. The last of my french connections occured in the late 70's when Lou and I were sitting having dinner in Cannes when we heard a lone piano player performing a beautiful song he called "El Bimbo". Lou and I looked at each other...and our eyes lit up!! Lou, an imposing 6'6" American who once ran Mercury international, spoke to him in perfect French and discovered that he was Claude Morgan, the composer of the song. A disco record by Bimbo Jet was racing up the charts and every U.S. publisher was after the sub-publishing rights. Claude said that the latest bid included a $25,000 advance. Lou, Claude and I set up a midnight meeting with the publishers and the producers...and before Midem, the international music conference resumed the next morning we had signed U.S.sub-publishing contracts ...without giving an advance. In lieu of money up front, I promised them 5 or 10 covers in the first year, which was easy to deliver... and promotional help on their "Bimbo Jet" recording, which was released on my old Alma Mater Scepter Records. regards, Artie Wayne -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 23 Date: Tue, 11 Jan 2005 18:22:37 +0000 From: Richard Williams Subject: Product placement Phil Milstein will be as sorry to hear as I am to report that the BBC's policy of refusing to mention or display brand names went the way of all things many years ago. It was one of the facets that distinguished a genuine public service broadcaster, but of course it couldn't survive the rise of corporate globalisation, Murdoch, etc. Not that there isn't good stuff on the BBC still, of course. But the Murdoch/Blair axis will destroy it in the end. Richard Williams -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

I know it is with me, if I have X amount of cash and there's two records in front of me I'll invariably go for the more obscure one on the basis of "If I don't get this now I might never see it again" especially if it's a "bargain". Probably how I ended up with a lot of mediocre Motown albums from the eighties and none of Stevie Wonder's eighties stuff. That's record collectors' psychology for you.

Message: 25 Date: Tue, 11 Jan 2005 15:29:07 -0500 From: Austin Roberts Subject: Re: Mono/mono Dj copies Clark, I appreciate your help on the UK version. Also, carrying the theme of double sided DJ copies of a single, one of the funniest things I've ever heard was the other side of a Don Bowman record many years ago (country). The A side was the single but the B side only read `DJ Version'. It was the same as the other side except the artist had changed the lyrics to a bawdy, sometimes bordering on filthy, version. I believe, because of this, he got a lot of airplay on the single as well as a little on the `other side' with the more fearless jocks.
